About Your Hosts…..Bozedown Alpacas

“Bozedown Alpacas” is a name synonymous with highest quality, reliability and support, ensuring that our customers return time and again.


We are genuinely enthusiastic about the alpacas we breed and sell. Our business is built on providing the best possible advice and service to our customers, supported by our wide range of World Class genetics.  We supply prizewinning breeding stock to many other highly successful alpaca breeders throughout Europe.

Bozedown has amassed a wealth of knowledge, with over 26 years experience in the alpaca industry, which we are always keen to share. We offer a comprehensive range of services, such as stud services, livery, consultancy, and a range of courses, along with a wide range of prize-winning Suri and Huacaya genetics for sale with comprehensive back-up.

Joy Whitehead bought 5 alpacas in 1989, and Bozedown Alpacas was born. Niece Mary-Jo Smith joined her in 2000, and together they have proved a strong team in selection and breeding of both huacaya and suri alpacas. Now with more than 700 Alpacas, Bozedown Alpacas has won a phenomenal number of Champion and Supreme Champion alpacas and other show successes over the years.

Outstanding genetics have been imported since 2000 from the renowned Jolimont herd in Australia, and so we have some key genetics from  Australia as building blocks in our Bozedown pedigrees, e.g. renowned Jolimont Sculptor and Jolimont Conquistador among others. More recently Herdsires Jolimont Reagan and Jolimont Rodrigo have made a valuable contribution, and premium pedigrees from Magical Farms in the USA have added further potency to our breeding lines. Our home-bred Champion Machos such as Huacayas Revel, Omen, Code Breaker, Bourbon,  Achilles, Comet II, Frisbee and Ascendant, and Suris such as Idaho, Milo II, Singapore and Joust are currently cementing our very strongly established pedigrees.  We are very excited to announce that in the spring of 2016 we will be adding some internationally recognised suri genetics to our stud line up.  More details to be announced at the Classic 2015!
